For many Gralien Report readers, it may come as a bit of a surprise that, in addition to my fascination with the unseen twilight realm of the unexplained, I share a mutual affinity for tasting fine craft brews, as well as exotic spirits of different varieties. Another website I moderate, Culture of Spirits, features reviews, news, recipes and a good selection of other interesting facets pertaining to the alcohol industry. Of particular interest to Gralien Report readers is a recent round-up I’ve done, regarding strange themes used in popular craft brews around the country that feature (sometimes very odd) paranormal imagery on their labels. With the help of my good buddy Christopher McCollum, one of the COS editors (as well as a correspondent to this website), I’ve managed to put together an entertaining bunch of selections for you, just in time for Halloween:

A Cavalcade of Paranormal Beer Selections

How many have you tried? Arguably, after trying ALL these at once, you’d be likely to see some spirits yourself! Remember: drink responsibly!

  1. LOL that list was very entertaining (although I’d liked it more if it included more pis of the beers bottles).

    Speaking of which, when are you going to release the ‘Gralien beer’? it of course would need to have a strong strawberry flavor, and after 5 or 6, your throat would be so numb that, when trying to speak, you’d sound as if you were performing a Tibetan chant! 😛

    Now seriously, it’s interesting that just yesterday I was finishing one of Darklore 3’s essays, in which Robert Schoch tells one legend concerning Hathor, an Egyptian goddess sent to Earth by the sun god Ra to punish mankind for not paying him enough respect; she enjoys her slaying job so much that Ra then fears she will end up killing all of mankind; so he decides to prepare a red-colored ale and leave it in a field where Hathor would pass nearby. Mistaking the beer for blood Hathor drinks it and gets so drunk that she stops killing men; thus mankind was saved by beer! 🙂

  2. Hey RPJ!

    Fascinating legend regarding Hathor’s drunken inability to slaughter innocent human men, lol! In the spirit of Ra, perhaps I could craft a red beer of such standards… although if there’s any way I could find a fruity flavor that had greenish hues (green apple, perhaps?) and use that instead, it might make for a slightly “greener” Gralien, eh? Then again, I could always simply opt for a green bottle. Yeah, that might be better. 😉
